Today was our first full (and very busy) day in Dublin, Ireland. It was also Lyle’s 23rd birthday. We woke up around 8am and started the day by taking a tour at Dublin Castle.
We successfully met up with Lyle by accident. We were supposed to meet him at the B&B in Kilkenny. However, his flight to Dublin was delayed and he missed his train. We ended up running into him at the Dublin train station. We had a couple hours to kill before catching the train to Kilkenny so we walked around Dublin for a bit.
It hasn’t rained for the past two days. It’s kind of weird. Tonight is our third and last night in Killarney and we are exhausted.We started our Killarney experience with a visit to Ross Castle.
This morning we slept in slightly. I blame jetlag and the Irish weather. Either way we set off for Killarney around 10am and took our first stop along the coast.
Today we rented bikes and rode around the Dingle Peninsula. In all it was about 30 miles and 5.5 hours of bike riding. We stopped a lot though to sight-see.
After travelling all day yesterday, we didn’t really have the energy to write any blog posts. We just checked into the hostel, walked down to the piers, and slept for about 10 hours. Today we did some grocery shopping before picking up our rental car and driving down the west coast of Ireland.
